Expedited Colon Therapy Program

We recognize that there are individuals with a variety of healthcare needs and interests who may not need the comprehensive initial evaluation that the Carolina Center traditionally provides.  For those who have a particular interest in only Colon Hydrotherapy, we offer an expedited program that gets patients going faster. 

 

It is generally recognized that for colon therapy to be successful and effective a series of treatments typically on a weekly or in some cases twice weekly basis must be carried out.  Based on response, these treatments can eventually be decreased in frequency with some form of regular maintenance being recommended once the patient is stable.  The International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy recommends a series of 12 weekly treatments then taper down to monthly.  Most colon therapy centers will therefore provide packages of 12 treatments to carry out this protocol. 

 

Because the Carolina Center for Integrative Medicine is a Medical Practice where all treatments must be ordered and supervised by a licensed physician, any individuals wishing to undergo treatments such as Colon Hydrotherapy must first be seen by the physician.  Individuals with a variety of chronic health problems which will require a comprehensive assessment and approach will be required to be seen as a traditional new patient, undergoing a standard 2-3 hour initial office visit.  For those who have a particular interest in Colon Hydrotherapy due to either mild digestive health issues or due to recognizing the preventive health benefits of this treatment and do not need such a comprehensive evaluation, we can provide this alternative:

  • Prior to Office Visit
    • Potential patient must complete the New Patient application materials and should check the request for Expedited Colon Therapy. 
    • You will then be contacted by Venica Thomas, CMA and Certified Colon Therapist, to review your health issues and confirm that that the Expedited Colon Therapy session is appropriate and facilitate scheduling.    
    • New Patients are strongly encouraged to attend the Group Orientation session prior to their initial visit. 
  • Initial Office Visit
    • Once accepted, you will be scheduled for your initial office visit at which time you will meet with both the Colon Therapist and Dr. Pittman. 
    • This initial session is appropriate 60-90 minutes between both providers
  •  Initial Colon Therapy Session
    • Included in the fee is your initial colon therapy session
    • Colon Therapy Teaching provided in this session
    • This is an additional 45 minutes. 
  • Charge for this encounter:  $372

After this initial office visit and initial colon therapy session, payment options are as follows:

  • Purchase Colon Therapy Package – packages of 6, 12 or 18 colon therapy sessions are available providing discounts when paid for in advance.  Most patients will get their best value by purchasing a package of 6 or 12 sessions.  See separate handout for details. 
  • Pay As You Go:  The cash charge for each colon therapy session is $108 when paid for at the time of service.
